PP Shadow MPs Anger JB for Commercialising Relief Maize Distribution: Ken Msonda, Peter Tchupa Implicated

jb_-food-distribPeople’s Party leader Joyce Banda temporarily shelved her temper and heavily admonished some of her shadow MPs for commercialising the relief maize distribution for personal gains.

Since December last year, the president had been busy giving his shadow MPs and some PP officials thousands of bags of soya, groundnuts and maize to distribute in area affected by hunger.

But the aspiring politicians turned the president’s gesture into a personal fundraising drive.

The PP officials re-packed the item, from the JB labeled bags to plain ones, ready for the market.

Among the buyers of items were Tanzanians, Nigerians, Burundians, who are running their businesses in the country.

The development, however, is said to have angered Joyce Banda and she recently summoned some of them at Kamuzu Place where she expressed her disappointment.

The meeting was also attended by some of the party’s NEC members such Clara Mary Manyungwa, Henry Chibwana and Homphmery Makande.

During the meeting, President Banda warned of a possible campaign funding freeze, if the shadow MPs continue abusing her gesture.

“I have never seen a visibly disappointed JB as she was at this meeting. A quiver of silence reigned in the room, with none of the suspects daring looking her straight into the eyes,” said the source.

Some of the Peoples Party shadow Mps who are suspected to have sold the relief maize are Blantyre Kabula’s Kenny Msonda and Ndirande Malabanda’s Peter Tchupa.

Few months ago, there was a commotion in Bangwe Township when PP officials failed to distribute the relief maize to the intended beneficiaries, a development which saw angry residents burning presidential chairs and podium.

    This is a classic example of failed leadership.

    Stock that maize in the ADMARC depots and stop taking advantage of people’s desperation for the precious grain by using it for political campaign,please!!
